Thread: which scanner to get?

  1. #1

    Default which scanner to get?

    i need a flatbed scanner/film scanner...
    budget $400-500, preferrrably below $400.

    was looking at the

    Canoscan 5000f . what do u guys think of it?

    any other recommendations? will be using it mainly to scan photos, pictures, maybe documents.

    anyone know if there are trade ins for scanners?

    I would suggest that you get a dedicated film scanner if you want to scan film. Pictures will definitely be better than a flatbed scanner.

    you might want to consider Duel III. It is a dedicated film scanner which costs around your budget.

    Default Scanner

    Hi ,

    I am quite happy with my scanner. It all depends on what you want to do with the final product; to print, to post on web...etc.
    I use the EPSON 2450. You see the pictures at the gallery.

    considered a dedicated film scanner... but i still need flatbed for other scannning. But flatbed scanners seem rather slow...

    how long would it take to scan a roll of 36 on a flatbed?
